Further, Faster and Fiercer! Africa Twin A/S

2018 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sports

The 2018 Honda Africa Twin A/S, officially known as the Adventure Sports, is a beefed up version of the original. Designed to take you further, faster and fiercer (?) , the A/S version of the Africa Twin features a larger and taller fairing, heated grips, power outlets, a larger bash plate, light bar, an additional 1.4 gallons (US) of space in the fuel tank, a 1.2 inch taller seat and .8 inch more suspension travel. The Adventure Sports 2018 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sportsversion of the Africa Twin isn’t stealing all the spotlight as both it and the standard version also get other improvements like a lighter lithium-ion battery, increased levels of traction control, a redesigned airbox and lighter balance-shaft weights which are said to give the bike a little more character under acceleration. That all sound pretty good and seeing as both KTM, BMW and Ducati have beefier versions of their adventure bikes it seems like a good decision on Honda’s part. A subtle change that Honda has made illustrating they were really doing a little thinking in this offering (and a change 2018 Honda Africa Twin Adventure Sportswhich also will apply to the standard model) is that the gauges have been placed at a flatter angle so when a rider is standing on the pegs the gauges are easier to see. The amount of time spent standing is often extended in some situations so this small change will be good news to some riders who use the bike for its intended purpose. The changes aren’t going to be inexpensive so expect to pay at least an additional $2000+ for the Africa Twin A/S, …. errr, Adventure Sports
